The members of Family for Every Child’s Board are meeting this week in London, United Kingdom.

Yesterday they elected Family’s new Chair and Vice-Chair: James Kofi Annan, Challenging Heights (Ghana) and Rita Panicker, Butterflies (India), respectively. James’ and Rita’s vast experience and dedication to children and their care will be invaluable to leading and guiding Family’s progress over the coming years.

“For me, it’s a call to duty and I have accepted the responsibility to facilitate the work of the board for Family to move forward. I accept it with humility and hope that we will all work towards moving forward the cause for children.”
